Have You Ever Met Someone Like Me?

Have you ever met someone like me?
Who spoke without words?
Whose eyes belonged to the floor?
Whose chants reached the heavens?
Whose skin according to you is so poisonously dark?

Is it bad?
To be someone like me
Talking to someone like you
Without words?

When we are stripped down by our words
Only colors remain
Only two colors
White and Not

I know it must be wrong
To talk without words
Not to White
I am Not

Please do not keep away
Because of my complexion
Always trying to make me wish I was you
But I am not
I cannot change who I am
